Welcome to the best month of the year! At this point, every member of my Ambitious Fam knows that February is my favorite month. It brings me joy to celebrate Black History Month, Valentine’s month, and my birthday month. It may be the shortest month of the year but it is bursting with excitement.
Here is what is on my bucket list this February:
Aquarius season is in full swing! I have quite a few Aquarians in my life, and celebrating their birthdays has been fun. This month, I will be celebrating a milestone birthday of my own—the big 3-0. There are a few celebrations on the agenda and I am so excited to welcome this new decade of life with my family and friends.
Jonas Brothers Concert!
Speaking of celebrations, my birthday present to myself this year is a Jonas Brothers Concert! I have memories of playing Just Friends on repeat on my boombox. Or when I was convinced that I could teach myself to play the guitar and would strum along to A Little Bit Longer (and the Climb because I was a Disney kid). The devastation I felt when Nick would talk about his diabetes and when the group split—destroyed. Listening to Nick and the Administration album and holding on to the chance that we could get married one day because we’re less than a year apart (lol). All this to say, teenage Cierra (and almost 30 yr old Cierra) loves that I’ll finally get the chance to see them in concert after all this time.
Attend a Drag Brunch
Borrowing this item from my 30 Before 30 Bucket List so that I can complete it before the arbitrary deadline! Spoiler alert—I’m not going to complete the list before my birthday but I will share more of my thoughts on my experience with this process soon!
Listen to Vintage Vinyls
I mentioned on my Winter Bucket List post that my mom shared some of her old vinyl records with me. I’ve been a little scared to play them because I wanted to get my bearings with my turntable so that I could reduce my chances of ruining them. My mom deemed them special enough to carry with her through life and it means so much that she shared them with me. That being said, I feel more comfortable and I’m ready to give them a spin!
Start a New Journal
I’ve been thinking about ways to capture this new decade of life outside of my typical blogging/vlogging. I came across a journal that allows you to write one line a day over 5 years and it seemed like an excellent way to reflect on the memories, changes, and experiences over a long period of time. I haven’t quite figured out what my strategy for this should be yet or if there even should be a strategy, but I’m curious to see how it goes!
Enjoy Heart-Shaped Treats
I’m a Valentine’s Day girl. I liveeee for all the pink and heart-shaped things! This month I plan on doing a little baking or, at the very least, getting a good amount of use out of my heart-shaped waffle maker.
